This year’s Risk Frontiers survey of European risk managers, sponsored by XL and Willis, took place as European companies grappled with big and fast developing political, social and economic changes such as the eurozone crisis, ongoing dramatic effects of the Arab Spring and the spectre of a ‘double dip’ European and global downturn. It was no surprise therefore that this year, more than in the past, the discussion was very macro-focused.

In this survey we shed light on those macro issues and other big risks keeping risk professionals awake at night, discuss the role risk managers should play to help their organisations navigate such choppy waters and consider to what extent the insurance market is responding and delivering on innovation. We also take an indepth look at the state of the corporate insurance market and the challenges raised by globalisation and multinational insurance programmes.
